No you won't, all you have to do is, while the phone is on, stick a piece of tin foil (a SMALL piece, preferably folded up) into the slot where you plug in the charger and wiggle it around until the phone shuts off. Then plug it in, turn it back on, and everything will be back to normal. The same thing happened to me and this advice was given to me, so I tried it and crazy as it sounds, it worked. Don't waste your money getting it repaired when it doesn't require anything more than a little foil. The number one cause of "car kit" is: babies sticking the phone in their mouths. :)

If you didn't plug in any car kit or earphones, that means your phone got water damaged. You will need to get it repaired.

SOURCE: lg vx 8300 phone was stuck in car kit pressed and held star key

ok you got to open it up then check for corrosion its very hard to spot but if you have a good magnifing glass and lighting you can spot it. scrape it off but not enough to hurt the board then it should work do not try the fork method!!! you could fry your phone if you are not careful. what happened is you got moisture in the phone and it has corroded a spot on the board thats it do not take it to your verizon store they will take your phone and charge you for a new one i think its a liability scam but i hope this helped!

Lg vx8300 verizon says car kit display have no


Car kit mode means one of two things, first it could have a piece of lint or paper stuck in the charge port making it think there is a car kit plugged in, or second it could be that some moisture got into the port and its giving a indication that something is plugged in. and thats why you're not getting any sound. There is no specific setting to turn on or off 'car kit' mode you can use a paper clip or something and mess with the port a little bit to see if 'car kit' goes away or replace phone

LG "car kit" switch


Car kit mode means one of two things, first it could have a piece of lint or paper stuck in the charge port making it think there is a car kit plugged in, or second it could be that some moisture got into the port and its giving a indication that something is plugged in. From the indication you are giving sounds like some moisture got in the phone via the charge port, you can try taking phone and battery apart and let sit overnight or put in bowl of rice to remove moisture

LG 8300 phone the display screen is distorted / scrambled


Hello,

The problem with your phone is that the flex on your phone screen is malfunctioning, that is why the screen is distorted.

All you will need to do is to change the flex on your phone screen because it is now faulty.

Change the flex of your phone screen as advice and you will see that your phone screen will be back to normal.

Take care.

This can mean your charger port is dirty or damaged. Look in the charger port, see if there are any little pins out of place, (Take out battary). and then try pushing them back in place. If that does not work, take it into store and have them check it. I have the blue one I love it, (even though every one else thinks its old) lol If it can't be fixed hopefully the tech can get you info out. The LG phones have been doing this "car kit" thing for many generations of LGs. I wish it was an EZr fix but it usally means something is wrong. Good Luck

Check the cable connector (at the bottom of the phone) for debris or corrosion on the connector contacts. Use rubbing alcohol if necessary.

My screen goes blank from time to time and when I turn it off and turn it back on again, it seems to re-boot itself and is fine. However, I have never had this problem with any other phone and fear my phone may be dying. It is only 1 year old and worked fine for the first 8 months I had it. But the blank screen seems to happen more frequently lately. I don't think I will buy and LG again.
